The morning class were rewarded with probably 3 purring male Turtle Doves, and we probably saw at least 5 different individual birds. That class may be surprised to learn that there wasn't a sound or sighting of this species in the afternoon. One was purring to at least 12.35 just after I finished my lunch, but that was it. The remainder of the interesting sightings from today are pictured above!
